^how do you power them??

I think he meant he kept the Collette's the same, but just used different cabling than the thicker Schoeps cabling, right ???
Schoeps MK4's | MK41's ->
Schoeps | NBob 250/05 KCY's ->
Schoeps VMS 02IB | Naiant +60v/Low Noise PFA's ->
DarkTrain Right Angle Stubby | GakCable XLR's ->
Sound Devices MixPre-6 | Tascam DR-70D ->
128gb | 64gb SanDisk Extreme Pro SDXC-I

I am considering the same setup (MK41>KCY 250/5 > PFA).

Does anyone run KCY 250/0 with KS 5 extension cable? Thinking the second option would be nice to have the caps and KCY mounted on a stereo bar and then have the option of running PFA > Long XLR for longer balanced runs. Other than cost any other negatives. The second option is about $130 more than straight KCY 250/5.

I have the KCY 250/5 and a KCY PFA.  I typically run the KCY right into my Lemosax but have considered getting the KS 5 for longer runs.  I cannot think why it would be a problem running it in between the KCY and PFA.  $130 for an extra 16' is not that bad of a price in "Schoeps World".

I've had Darktrain make me a number of KCY extensions. Among them are two single 30 feet KCY extension cables, as well as a snake: 30 foot *pair* (i.e. 4 channels) of KCY in a single tekflexed cable. It's perfect for getting microphones into the perfect spot, and then running cables to your seat. Lots of good gaffers tape and KCY extension cables makes virtually any decent balcony seat into DFC front row rail, for example.

Capsules: Schoeps mk41v, mk4v, mk22, mk3 & mk8
